// Please enter a detailed description of the issue // Description of the issue: This is an issue I’ve reported before concerning printing to PDF or exporting paginated PDFs. The issue is that Marked 2 often fails to finish the print/export and one gets only a few pages of the PDF. I’ve got a 3GHz i7 and 16GB of RAM and it still fails sometimes. My recollection was that you did not think there was much more that you could do. However, I wonder if you have any new suggestions for how to maximize the likelihood of getting the export to work?

    Does it display any error, or just output an incomplete PDF document?

    Just an incomplete PDF. Results vary. Sometimes a few pages.
    Sometimes a few with malformatted latter pages.

    I have the same problem. I have a 90ish page markdown file that had previously exported to a paginated PDF but now only does 25 pages. Changing styles doesn't help. No error.

    Yep, I just started being able to consistently replicate this today on 10.13. I'm teaching it down asap.
